">Twitter. "It's coach and Shelley and we just wanted to say hello to you and also, as I've told our team many, many times over the years, that heroes come at very little expense nowadays. However, the true heroes are the men and women that protect us everyday. We want to say a special thank you to those working at the Wexner Medical Center. . . .

Urban and his family clearly still have great love for the Ohio State community. His efforts - both on and off the field - continue to have a profound impact in the state of Ohio.

Many still wonder if the former Buckeyes coach will eventually return to college football.

But Urban certainly seems like he's enjoying his coaching retirement for the time being.
